The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre is currently engaged in developing a clearing house on TVET good practices in collaboration with UNESCO TVET section. As part of this activity, the Centre has developed a conceptual framework for identifying and assessing TVET practices, consisting of a set of clear criteria that can be applied so as to evaluate the quality of each practice. The six criteria for assessment of potential good practices are: impact, innovation and creativity, knowledge base, stakeholder engagement, monitoring and evaluation, and efficiency.
So far, UNESCO-UNEVOC has identified an extensive pool of potential good practices, and, after an initial screening and shortlisting process, the first nine practices selected through peer review with the assistance of a group of external experts are already available on the dedicated area of the UNESCO-UNEVOC website.
The work on the good practices clearing house is ongoing and UNESCO-UNEVOC is currently in the process of identifying and selecting further practices for inclusion in the clearing house. In doing this, it is making use of its extensive in-house resources, including its online library, as well as utilizing the expertise of the UNEVOC Network which covers all of UNESCO Regions. As well as increasing the number of good practices, the online platform of the clearing house will also be further developed in the course of 2013. By developing this clearing house on TVET good practices UNESCO-UNEVOC aims to improve knowledge sharing and to promote North-South and North-South-South cooperation, particularly through the active involvement of the UNEVOC Network in the activity.
